Whatcha gonna do? Not a lot of female nudity in the new releases this week, but one helluva great selection of films.

"Flypaper" (1997) by Johnny Web

Flypaper is a slight twist on the Tarantino formula. It does have the intersecting plot lines, sensationalized violence, and perverse humor, but it twists the knife in a slightly different direction. It goes directly for the humorous aspects of the grotesque violence, rather than for the gory aspects. As a result, one guy walks around with his ear off, and another guy spends the last third of the movie with a knife in his head. Now that I think about it, I don't know if anyone ever dies in this movie. They just keep accumulating more bizarre wounds, and losing more body parts. Anyway, it is funny in a sick and twisted way, but the essence of the movie is just pointless schlock, and a little of that goes a long way for me. Look for a truly twisted scene where Lucy Liu and her lover take anti-venom antidote and make love in a nest of snakes, while being bitten viciously in graphic detail. I think this heightens their pleasure - or something.

There is flesh from Liu and Frost, but not from Talisa Soto (pity).

"The Talented Mr Ripley", (1999) by Johnny Web

This movie is much better than I anticipated. The trailers that I saw were not a good indication of the essence of the movie. It is actually a Hitchcockian thriller that equals even the master. The connection with Hitch is tightened by the source material. Patricia Highsmith, author of the Ripley novels, is also the author of the novel Strangers on a Train, which was adapted by noir king Raymond Chandler into the script for a famous Hitchcock film.

Tom Ripley is exceptional in the realm of literary bad guys in that he is the focus of a series of books. Normally the baddie gets his just due at the end of a book or movie, but Highsmith played the dirty trick of making us like Ripley and want to read more and more about him. And she obliged us by writing sequels for forty years. Yes Ripley is amoral, even ruthless, but he just seems to pull it off with such clumsy enthusiasm. The Talented Mr Ripley is the beginning of the Ripley saga, in which the con man was just learning how to do his thing. The movie captures the spirit of the work perfectly with the casting of Matt Damon, who pulls off brutual murder with such earnest wide-eyed naivete that we end up liking him and rooting for him to succeed, and longing to learn more about his life. Same damned trick that the book pulls off. Could any other current actor but Damon pull this off? Just a masterstroke of casting. Expect sequels to bounce from the respectable $80 million domestic gross.

This is the second time this book has been made into a movie. The first was way back in 1960, in a Rene Clement ("Forbidden Games") movie called "Plein soleil", starring a young Alain Delon as Ripley. It is available in an English subtitled video version called "Purple Noon".

In addition to the interpretations by Delon and Damon, the part of Ripley has also been played, unlikely though it seems, by Dennis Hopper in "The American Friend", a Wim Wenders adaptation of Highsmith's novel "Ripley's Game".

This is a handsomely photographed movie of spectacular European locales, but I'm sorry to say that all the nudity is supplied by males. (Ripley is, um, omnisexual)


"The Woody Allen Collection" by Johnny Web

Eight of Woody's best in one set, including Annie Hall, Manhattan, Bananas, Sleeper, Everything You Always Wanted ..., and my favorite, the erudite Love and Death (Woody's interpretation of War and Peace, complete with score by Prokoviev). Who else but Woody Allen would write a parody of the Napoleonic Wars?). Eight DVD movies for less than 12 bucks apiece. A must for Woody fans. I'm not a great fan of Stardust Memories, which is in the collection, and the tone of "Interiors" is really not consistent with the rest of the set. And I really wish the set included Zelig, Hannah and her Sisters, and Take the Money and Run, but let's be thankful for the treasures we are given. It is a powerhouse package. The picture here is Shelley Duvall in "Annie Hall"

"Dead Again" (1991) by Johnny Web

Kenneth Branagh has not been very successful when he has ventured away from Shakespeare. Some of his Bardless efforts have been downright embarrassing exercises in walking his ego. But not this one. The blatant theatricality of the script was perfect for his theatrical style, and I think you'll be especially impressed by the black and white scenes of the earlier life (it's about the transmigration of souls, sort of, with Thompson and Branagh playing two roles apiece). Branagh pays tribute to Welles and Hitchcock in his B&W cinematography, and does an uncanny impersonation of Olivier as Roman, the maestro who escaped from the Nazis. The Olivier impersonation extends beyond the voice and style. He bears an eerie physical resemblance to Lord Larry as well, as you can see in the accompanying picture of Em's cleavage.

In the later life, Branagh takes his character as far from Shakespeare as possible, and plays a stuttering and stumbling dolt of a private eye with a childlike naivete and a glass jaw. He may have made this character a bit too wide-eyed, but he wanted to create a vast distance between the two characters, and the overall effect is fine.

The film could have suffered greatly if it had taken itself completely seriously, but it carries off the silly multiple-lives plot with a great deal of pleasant offhanded deprecation, and the film is just loaded with in-jokes. (If you're an "I, Claudius" fan, you're going to love Derek Jacobi's moment of self-parody.) It lies somewhere comfortably between an homage to Hitchcock, and a little bit of fun at the master's expense. (Could there be any more close-ups of the murder weapon?) This is one of the last movies made in the grand old style, so if you like the films of the 30's and 40's, with their gothic sets, deep shadows, and vertiginious camera angles, this will be your cup of tea. I really enjoyed it, in all of its gloriously excessive faux-majestic splendor, and all of its bizarre over-the-top plot twists.

"Harold and Maude" (1971) by Johnny Web

Typical of this week's new DVD material: terrific film with no nudity. Of course, I doubt if you'd want all that much nudity in the love story between a 20 year old boy and a 79 year old woman. This film has been a cult favorite for a couple of decades now, and was a labor of love for the participants. There are so many great scenes that you have to see it yourself.

The boy's false suicides and his pretentious mother's offhanded responses to them are some of the funniest moments ever captured on film.

You regulars know that I am always mesmerized by the artifacts of that counter-cultural revolution in the 1968-74 period, and this is one of the very best samples of the anti-conventional and anti-authoritarian attitude of that era, right down to the Cat Stevens background score. If you want to experience how we thought and felt in that era, this movie serves as part of your introductory course. (I also recommend MASH and Putney Swope in your Hippie 101 survey course, and some back issues of National Lampoon and Ramparts.)

Here's a great web site with all kinds forgotten lore about Harold and Maude, Bud Cort, Cat Stevens, Ruth Gordon, and others who participated. I especially recommend a quick look through the comments in the trivia section. What was the deal on Harold's Jag-hearse or Maude's concentration camp tattoo? Pick up some of the additional details from the book that were unrealized or inexplicit in the film, or just read the fans' dissection of their favorite elements.

"Scream 3" (2000) and some chat by Johnny Web

Akira did a good job on the Jenny McCarthy material yesterday, so I skipped over it. This is also a good movie, a worthy successor to the excessively self-aware tradition of Scream, with some very offbeat performances by such performers as Parker Posey and David Arquette, and a brilliant cameo by Leiv Schreiber, who continues the Don Cheadle path of stealing scene after scene and film after film without really breaking through to the top. By the way, speaking of Don Cheadle, did you read that they are remaking Ocean's 11 with George Clooney in the Sinatra role. The film also stars Cheadle, Mark Wahlberg (who is now officially Clooney's wacky little buddy sidekick), Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Bill Murray, and Bruce Willis. Could be super with a great script. Steven Soderbergh, director of "Erin Brockovich" and "Out of Sight", will helm the film. Soderbergh is equally at home with conventional big budget flicks and smaller experimental stuff. I really enjoyed his offbeat and strangely paced "The Limey", which plays like an indy with a few extra bucks thrown at it.

Back to the topic of Scream 3, here's Kelly Rutherford. I guess she's naked, but she's behind a translucent shower screen, so you can't see jack.

"Cinderella Liberty" (1973) from GR

I don't believe I have seen caps of this before. Marsha Mason shows off some fine assets in this hippie-era Jimmy Caan flick.

"Metroland" from Tuna

Metroland is a rather pedestrian film about a man who has been married for 10 years, and is finding things a bit cold in bed. When his best friend returns, he can't help thinking about his first love -- a young French girls from his journey to Paris to beco0me a famous photographer and leave middle-class morals behind. The film takes its name from the Metroliner which takes the commuters to and from their middle class suburb. Although the plot covers no new ground, the film provides great nudity from three actresses. Emily Watson plays his wife, who admits to an affair. Elsa Zylberstein plays the French girlfriend, and is delightful. Amanda Ryan plays a temptress, who his best friend talks into trying to seduce him. It is a watchable film with good exposure, but is not especially memorable.

"Re-Animator" from Tuna

I finally got my hands on the DVD edition of the 1985 horror classic Re-Animator. Seems there are titles distributed in Canada that we can't get from US vendors. A young medical student develops a somewhat unreliable serum to bring the dead back to life. The film contains as much comedy as horror. I one scene, the beautiful and naked Barbara Crampton is hit on by a severed head. This is the best exposure of the lovely Ms. Crampton.
